Alejandro: the Taxman

How many new taxes has Alejandro Garcia Padilla signed into law since taking office?  I forget.  Its been so many that I’ve lost count.  Can you count them all?  Me neither, because within legislation; especially long bills of law, there are taxes and fees hidden so no one can complain.

Suffice it to say that Puerto Rico’s economy was on its death bed, and AGP made sure to kill what was left.  So in honor of this incredible feat of turning an island of 3.5 million people into one giant unemployed paradise of poor people, in honor of being able to hid a 150 Billion dollar plus budget in an ‘official’ debt of 73 billion (still the highest debt of any US jurisdiction) I dedicate this song to you Alejandro.

The only song, that explains what it is you are doing:
